General News of Thursday, 13 December 2018
Action Patriots For Justice(APJ), a pressure in the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) has accused the biggest opposition party, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) for attempting to distort facts to create the impression that, the Nana Addo-Bawumia government have not done anything since NPP took over power from the NDC.
The NDC's newly introduced press briefing series, dubbed, "Moment of Truth" is intended to focus on what the party terms as, "Exposing the failed promises of the Akufo-Addo - Bawumia government."
The maiden edition of the briefing series, which is similar to the "Setting the Records Straight" edition, which used to be organised by Fifi Kwetey, whilst the NDC was in opposition between 2001 and 2009, was addressed by Mr Sammy Gyamfi, National Communications Officer of the NDC on Wednesday morning.
But Action Patriots For Justice has responded to the issues raised by the opposition describing it as so it so disingenuous adding that Mr Sammy Gyemfi and the NDC are scared by the many positive results coming out of the prudent policies implemented by the NPP administration in almost 2 years now.

For Immediate Release!!!!!
RE: MOMENT OF TRUTH(CLAIMS BY THE VICE PRESIDENT DR. BAWUMIA THAT THE AKUFO ADDO GOVERNMENT HAS DELIVERED ON MANY OF IT'S PROMISES TO THE PEOPLE OF GHANA)
Action Patriots For Justice(APJ), finds it so disingenuous, the attempt by the NDC to distort facts, to as it were, create the impression that, the Nana Addo-Bawumia government have not done anything since NPP took over power from the NDC.
Whether deliberate or scared by the many positive results coming out of the prudent policies implemented by the NPP administration in almost 2 years now, Sammy Gyamfi and his NDC feels they must dressed up an organized noise in a form of a press release, to deceive Ghanaians in order to save the face of the diminishing NDC.
It is as if, the NDC cannot make a single meaningful statement without dragging the name of Dr MahamuduBawumia into it, to catch the attention of Ghanaians to their vile propaganda.
Indeed the NDC is taking Ghanaians for granted, for the simple reason that, Ghanaians have "short memory" as Mahama told us. If not, the NDC cannot have the temerity to say anything concerning governance in this country after their bad performance under Fmr Perez Mahama and APJ is struggling to come to terms with the fact that, if this is the Ghana Sammy Gyamfi and his NDC left for the NPP just two years ago.
Admittedly, Ghana cannot be said to have changed into heaven within the 2-year rule of the NPP government, neither is the Nana Addo-Bawumia government claiming to have solved all the problems in this country but averagely, there has been significant gains in every facet and sector of the economy giving the the indications that, there is light at the end of the tunnel.
The so called "Moment of truth" agenda set out by the NDC is designed to twist facts and figures as a cover up to the poor performance of the erstwhile Mahama and late Amissah Arthur's administration which superintendent over the economic mess that has brought us to where we are today, despite the tireless effort exhibited by the Nana Addo-Bawumia government to make Ghana work Again.
His Excellencies, Nana AddoDanquahAkufoAddo and Dr MahamuduBawumia are not above criticism but not from the very people under whose watch, Ghana experienced bad governance ever recorded in the history of this country.
Where was Sammy Gyamfi when the late Mills and Mahama administration scored themselves; 75 percent in their first 100 days in office whilst OkudzetoAblakwaa as the then deputy information minister announced non existed and hallucinated jobs created for 2 million people also in the same 100 days in office?
APJ can forgive Sammy Gyamfi because he was then a small boy with little knowledge in politics.
Again, what is the credibility of Sammy Gyamfi, who recently lied about his Excellency the president, Nana AddoDanquahAkufoAddo and was later seen running around begging and crying for forgiveness?
It is said that, you don't run after a mentally deranged man who takes and runs away with your cloths while bathing, but in a situation where one pretends to be mentally deranged, calling such person to order is permissible.
APJ is allergic to mediocrity and the disgusting behaviour of portraying all knowing altitude as the little Sammy Gyamfi who have recently emerged out of the NDC, claiming to have answers and solutions to every problem in this country, yet he wasn't heard of, when his party under Mahama failed woefully in government about 8 years ago and at a point in time, called for experts and gathered them at Senchi, including the comedian AkuaDonkor to suggest solutions to the erstwhile Mahama led government when Mahama had lost control and didn't know what to do about the hardships prevailing at that time?
Juxtaposing what fmr Perez Mahama said on CNN that, he cannot use two and half years to turn Ghana's economy around and the 50 points Sammy Gyamfi and the NDC have put out in their mischievous press release tells us that, Sammy Gyamfi doesn't know anything about governance by judging and describing Nana Addo-Bawumia government to have failed abysmally for not delivering on all it's promises within two years whiles his boss, Mahama, has stated without mincing words that, four years is even impossible to excute that.
The Nana Addo-Bawumia government and the NPP have a 4-year social contract with the good people of this country and they will judge the NPP by what we said in our manifesto after the 4 years in the Helm of affairs but not the Sammy Gyamfi led NDC, whose focus and aim is to score cheap political points by twisting facts to blindfold and blackmail Ghanaians.
His Excellency Nana Addo and Dr MahamuduBawumia will continue to be focus, working tirelessly to make Ghana work Again.
Long Live Ghana!!!
Long Live Nana!!!
Long Live Bawumia!!!
Long Live APJ!!!
